Judge blocks NYC from sending migrants to suburban county

 May 17, 2023

Despite condemning Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbot for sending illegal migrants to his city, New York Mayor Eric Adams has begun bussing aliens to other counties in the state.

However, Breitbart reported that on Tuesday a judge moved to block Adams from sending any more. 

Two New York counties have managed to halt migrant transfers

According to the website, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus issued a statement following the victory, saying, "This is what the decision is: No more folks can be shipped up here from New York City … for the time being."

"New York City, knowing that the case was under review, tried to flood as many buses up here as possible," Neuhaus complained.

The county executive went on to point out that local officials have "zero information" on the migrants, stating, "That’s the biggest problem … we have no idea — names, ages, status, where they are from, were they vetted?"

Orange County is now the second county to successfully block Adams' migrant transfers after Rockland County won a similar court battle earlier this month.

Veterans forced out to make way for migrants

Meanwhile, the New York Post reported last Friday that a group of homeless veterans were forced out of the Orange County hotels they were staying at.

Sharon Toney-Finch is a disabled veteran who serves as CEO of the non-profit Yerik Israel Toney Foundation, and she told the paper, "Our veterans have been placed in another hotel due to what’s going on with the immigrants."

"One of the vets called me on Sunday," Toney-Finch explained. "He told me he had to leave because the hotel said the extended stay is not available. Then I got another call."

"A lot of them are Vietnam veterans. We do help them constantly to get them benefits and help them find a place in society," she said.

Toney-Finch suggested that the hotels were getting rid of the veterans because her organization can't afford to offer as much money as the City of New York can.

Democratic congressman says situation "will not be tolerated"

"That’s so unfair, because at the end of the day, we are a small nonprofit, and we do pay $88 a day for a veteran to be there," she complained.

New York Democratic Rep. Pat Ryan expressed outrage over the news, tweeting, "This is bulls--t. [Twenty] veterans lost their housing tonight because of incompetence by New York City government."

"I am doing everything I can to ensure these service members have a bed to sleep in tonight. Let me be clear. This will not be tolerated," he added.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
